discussed. one that is significant for us and for your public is there will be a limiting order not quite a full gag order, but something that will include something like a gag order, information released to the press and therefore to the public. so a lot of what's in the search warrant will not be made public for a long time as this point. and from this point forward, charges one week from now and then the schedule of a preliminary hearing at which time there will be some testimony taken probably from tr both sides just as to establish there is probable cause for an arraignment. and then at that point a couple things will kick in. we'll hear about -- the clock will start for the prosecution during which they have to decide whether to go for death. and the defense will have to determine and say at arraignment when they have to enter a plea, not guilty by reason of in-issay insanity. likely be examinations. perhaps committed to the state hospital. and then a determination about whether he can assist in his own defense, understands the charges against him or needs to be restored to sanity.
on an expert to break it down for us. lieutenant colonel tony shaffer has been advising members of congress on threats to the grid as a senior member of the new task force on national and homeland security. so walk me through the most immediate threats. what do we have to address right now? >> right now we have an aging power grid as you pointed out that's not resilient and the smart grid we're going to ain't much better, why? because the bottom line is how do you create profit off the transmission of energy, how can energy be processed moved and effect tiffly used during blackout or extreme conditions. the bottom line here, just so everybody understands, everything we have, even coffee makers have chips in them and frankly if the power doesn't work, the internet doesn't work and every aspect of life ceases to function reasonably if at all, as most of us have experienced with blackout here in washington just ten days ago. >> you say that we should all be prepared to live without electricity for a week. i loved in alaska off the grid, so i'm pretty sure i can rough it. but for our city slick

-sustaining growth that will give us the middle class that president obama speaks. >> jared, i want to go to you and focus on one particular aspect of this. obviously, there's a lot involved when you get a report like this, but there's something that jumps out at me and i think about every month when we get bad news like this, and that is the number of public sector jobs that have been lost since obama became president. i think it's 4,000 this month or for the last month, it's over 600,000 since 2009. it strikes me, this is something we have complete control over. these people do not have to be out of work. i just wonder, how different might the economy be, what would the ripple effect be like if we didn't have these jobs lost? >> it's a great point. the unemployment rate would be about a point lower over the past year if we hadn't lost so many of those jobs. you know, you mentioned 4,000. that's over all the three federal, state, local sectors. last month we shed 14,000 educator jobs in local government. many of those are teachers. 23 out of the last 25 months, we've shed public sector jobs. as
